The weather was rainy and cold this morning so warmth was in order. I decided to give another go to "boxy shirt under boxy sweater" formula.
My first attempt was in pic#2. However in the first hour at work I realized that I am not happy with this outfit. The shirt under this sweater just did not feel right to me. What to do?
My first inclination was to remove the shirt all together and just wear the sweater but then I decided to try and tuck the shirt in. Voila - it was completely different for me and I felt much better right away so this is how I went through the day (pic#1).
I tried to analyze why the version in pic#2 made me unhappy. I think it is the shirt: it is too long for this sweater, too boxy (the hem is bunching a bit) and too straight. On the other hand I really liked it tucked and the collar worked really well for me with the cowl of the sweater (or at least this is what I want to believe).
I will try this formula again but with the different shirt (maybe BB?) but what do you think of this experiment?
